Grow your mo

Each year, as part of the Movember campaign, men around the world commit to signing up on www.movember.com and growing a moustache for November in the name of men’s health. A major focus of Movember is raising awareness and opening dialogues about issues that affect men as well as the promotion of the need to improve your general health.

As part of this awareness campaign, Movember encourages you not only to grow a Mo for 30 days, but to know the numbers that affect your health: find out about your family medical history, go for medical checks, be familiar with your body and any unusual changes, and reach out for help if you suspect something is wrong. Movember also calls for you to make a commitment to be more active over the month, incorporating exercise into your daily routine under the Movember MOVE initiative.

Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on millions of men’s faces around the world and in South Africa in November each year: raising funds and awareness for men’s health issues, specifically prostate and testicular cancer. But men’s health issues don’t only affect men – we are all affected – each one of us has a father or brother or partner or friend whose life and health deeply impacts our own. Sign up on www.movember.com and grow a Mo!

It is estimated that the risk of heart disease, diabetes and cancer can be lowered by up to 50% through incorporating moderate exercise into your daily routine. Although relatively few studies have looked at the impact of exercise specifically on prostate and testicular health, the ones that have suggest that regular physical activity lowers the risk of developing these cancers and also lowers the mortality rates of men diagnosed with these diseases. Being active is one of the best things you can do for your health.

Making a MOVE can improve your general well-being and health, not to mention it can combat fatigue, aches and pains, as well as mood, anxiety and depression.

“We all know that being active and doing more exercise has benefits for our health, but often life gets in the way and we struggle to factor in the time to MOVE,” says Garron Gsell, Country Manager of Movember South Africa. “During Movember, as you look in the mirror each morning, let your Mo act as a reminder to the commitment you have made to do more for your health – get out there and MOVE your Mo!”

The facts are clear; we all need to MOVE a little more. MOVE asks you to pledge half an hour of your day to a physical activity that you enjoy or can easily access. Whether it is walking to work, taking the stairs, doing a yoga class, going for a surf or cycling around your neighbourhood – commit to anything that gets you moving a little more than usual. As long as your Mo is moving, you are headed in the right direction and taking positive steps towards improving your health.
